I’ll just react as I usually do to Peter’s very stimulating talk, and his stimulating paper; and I must say at the beginning that what I have always appreciated about his work is that it is stimulating of thought and imagination. That’s really the first thing, and it’s always a little bit provocative: you put in certain things which you know are just for rebuttal and, most importantly, contradicting Peter is always raising the contradictor to a higher level – in other words it enhances the logical, cultural, philosophical and humane level of argumentation; that’s, incidentally, also why I think Peter is so frequently quoted.
Maybe at some point we should have a conference on that subject. It certainly is a very interesting one, and more and more a topic of heated discussion. I could perhaps remind you at this point that the idea for this type of round-table discussion originated with Multilingual Matters, and Christina Schäffner has run and organised similar events at Aston. I think we want to pay our compliments to Christina for providing us with a model. On one occasion we had a very lively and interesting discussion at Aston following a paper given by Mary Snell-Hornby.
Thank you. Gunilla Anderman Good. Simon, I think you also had a point related to the next topic, Valid and Deficient Texts. Would you like to continue please? Simon Chau Thank you very much. Well, I think that, as far as sacred texts are concerned, the same texts can be sacred on one occasion, and they can be non-sacred on other occasions. It’s not the nature of the text itself, but Shakespeare, as well as Tony Blair, can be very sacred, when translated for a particular purpose. And, you know, these days we recite a complete work of Shakespeare4 in 97 minutes.
